Austin, TX, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- July 31, 2009 - Austin Energy has successfully installed Ecologic Analytics’ meter data management system (MDMS), the company has announced.

To fully achieve the operational benefits from an automated metering infrastructure (AMI) requires a single solution to translate the raw meter data into a common format that can be used for complex processing. Ecologic Analytics’ validation, estimation and editing (VEE) engine for interval data, iWAVE™, will play a prominent role in providing accurate billing determinants as Austin Energy applies VEE rules to interval data in 15-minute increments to fuel future demand side programs.  

“We’re excited to be working with Austin Energy,” said Kristine Beck, co-founder and chief operations officer. “The utility has some of the most advanced demand side management plans in place, and it’s gratifying to know our MDMS will play a critical role in their plans.”

Austin Energy has been a demand side management leader for many years. Its energy efficiency and alternative fuel programs are two of the reasons the utility has been identified by the Department of Energy as the number one green power utility in the country six years running.

Austin Energy is a community-owned utility serving nearly 400,000 customers within Austin, Texas, broader Travis county, and a portion of the adjacent Williamson county.
